Vik Muniz: The Unbearable Likeness of Being

An interesting read for fans of photography, Vik Muniz expands upon the idea of recognition and how it functions in our heads. The idea of recognizing shapes in clouds and the cosmos in the sand.

“Metaphors, lies, misunderstandings, visions, abstractions. We may glimpse these semantic microcosms of forms with the same quiet panic with which we gaze at the stars on a clear night; as is often the case when we momentarily loose our tools of understanding and interpreting to become fully aware of the mind’s instinctive predisposition to fabricate thing for interpreting and understanding.”                                                                                                             -Vik Muniz
